The Harvard Student Art Show 2019 will be the Harvard Undergraduate Student Art Collective’s eleventh annual flagship exhibit for the spring semester. It is a month-long exhibition that displays artwork submitted by individuals throughout the university and also features student performing artists on its opening night. Since 2008, attendance to the Harvard Student Art Show has steadily increased, and currently the Harvard Student Art Show is the largest student-curated art exhibition on campus. This year we are excited to host our exhibit in the Arts Wing of the newly renovated Smith Campus Center to shift the show to a more central location on campus. The opening of our 2018 exhibit in the Ed Portal attracted an audience of over 700 students and Cambridge residents, and we expect attendance to increase as we move to this new gallery space.

The Harvard Undergraduate Student Art Collective is a College Recognized student organization that organizes and curates exhibitions of Harvard student art. The Harvard Student Art Collective believes that student artists deserve spaces in which to share their work on campus, and aims to celebrate the truly incredible community of artists the university has to offer. As we prepare for this year’s show, the Harvard Student Art Collective is working closely with the Directors of the Smith Campus Center Common Spaces, through monthly meetings, and working closely with the OFA as well. 

Due to our track record of producing ten successful exhibitions and our strong institutional support, we believe that the Harvard Student Art Show 2019 will accomplish our goal of promoting student artists on campus and building inclusive arts spaces.

Risks and challenges

While the university supports our initiative with guidance and preliminary funding, we rely on community support to put together a show that qualifies as a professional opportunity for Harvard student artists. So much of the art created on this campus is never seen by the community, and we believe it is critically important to give space and recognition to the artists among us.
